Tivoli Hotels & Resorts recently launched its first hotel in the Netherlands in a XVI century heritage property in the classicist style, overlooking the Amstel Canal, in what is considered to be the oldest hotel in the Dutch capital. 

According to a press statement the heritage property is centrally located in Amsterdam‘s city centre and is within walking distance of the city’s top tourist attractions. It has 81 guest rooms that includes seven suites, most of which overlook the canal. The statement adds that the hotel’s elegant Omber restaurant and bar features a new culinary concept that was inspired by Rembrandt’s artwork. It was also home to Rembrandt Van Rijn’s famous painting The Night Watch, which hung on a wall inside one of the bedroom suites.

Tivoli Doelen Amsterdam says that it offers a variety of customised tours that start and conclude at the hotel dock and explore the expansive Ijsselmeer lake, the city canals, or Oudekerk aan de Amstel.

The statement adds that Tivoli Doelen’s interiors blend an old-world elegance with contemporary service and special Tivoli touches. Guest rooms and suites offer views over the canals or the city, with the interiors featuring pastel tones with red splashes of colour for a relaxing but vibrant atmosphere, combined with touches of wood and special amenities from the French luxury brand Lalique for bathrooms.

The hotel says that guests can also book the 47-square-metre Rembrandt Suite, where they can view a perfect replica of The Night Watch. Another interesting room is the Empress Suite that was once the boudoir of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, most well-known as Sisi. A Mediterranean-Dutch fusion menu is available at the Omber restaurant and bar. Omber is a distinguishing colour in Rembrandt’s artwork and every dish on the menu has a component that is inspired by his colour pallet. The menu also takes inspiration from the artist’s favourites dishes such as herring and pickles that have been recreated by the team with the Dutch name of Rembrandt Pauze. The slow cooked Dutch Veal with parsnip, carrots and purslane is one of the dishes paired with Portuguese Cartuxa wine from the Alentejo region, giving a nod to the brand’s Portuguese heritage.

The statement adds that several signature cocktails have been created with Jenever for the Omber Bar. Most of the cocktails are made with Wynand Fockink, which operates a similar distillery process to that used in the Dutch Golden Age. The star cocktail Night Watch is based on an old recipe found in the hotel archives dating back to the 17th century and is made with old Jenever, coffee liqueur, syrup and cherry bitters. Daily at 16:30 Omber Bar celebrates the aperitivo moment offering guests some local sips to savour.

The hotel adds that with an immersive “In the Footsteps of Rembrandt” tour, guests can visit his home and studio, the gothic Zuiderkerk, his family church featured in his art, and the artists’ guild of De Waag, one of the oldest buildings in the city. The hotel has created a partnership with the Rembrandthuis Museum giving hotel guests the possibility of booking a very exclusive experience, a dinner, served by the Tivoli Doelen team, in the actual kitchen of Rembrandt’s house. Guests can also book a painting workshop, inspired by the Dutch grand master, getting to know better the ancient art heritage of Amsterdam.

The hotel says that Tivoli arrives in Amsterdam in March 2023, the month of the brand’s 90th anniversary, celebrating its sophisticated hospitality with events and special guest experiences to be revealed throughout the year, adds the statement.
